  •  Rubio has two major strikes against him (2+ / 0-)

    should he decide to run for President...and even in the off chance that he doesn't, he still has two major strikes against him for reelection, IF (and that's a big, if) his opponents (Democratic and Republican alike) take him to task on just two issues:

    1) The minimum wage. He recently told CBS New he opposes a minimum wage. Am not sure how such an extremely radical position like this would play in a general election, especially among middle class and lower wage workers, and...
    2) His support for immigration reform/amnesty. This has the potential to make him unpalatable to the crazies that are the majority in Republican primaries.

    Those two issues alone should sink any political aspirations of Rubio for higher office...unless he faces completely incompetent opponents in either a primary or general election campaign.
